A shopper who found brown pellets scattered in her Coles lettuce claims it is animal droppings.
The outraged woman bought the vegetable from a Perth supermarket on Thursday and started to prepare her lunch when she noticed something wasn’t right.
The disgusted woman took to Facebook to post a photo of the baby cos lettuce with small brown particles scattered between the leaves.
Coles said it was investigating the matter and as the lettuce was grown in a hydroponic plant the particles could simply be soil fragments.

‘Just bought this baby cos yesterday and have found what looks like very large poop droppings right through the lettuce!’ the customer claimed in her post.
The customer is not certain what type of animal might have left behind the mess.
‘I’m used to seeing little bits of dirt etc but never seen such big bits. Went right off my lunch,’ she wrote.
The customer said she intended to return the contaminated product to the supermarket.
The supermarket giant said it was investigating the matter.
‘Coles takes the quality of all our products seriously and has spoken to the customer to follow up their concern,’ it said in a statement.
‘As always we encourage customers to return any item they’re not 100% happy with to their nearest store for a full refund or replacement.’
